    i think the PUG scene is dying, as testy Khyber closed ranks on Stoners. Symerith, you're missed for sure. Your energetic sarcasm and penchant for honest are positively Khyberian, and perhaps one day you'll be back. You got skillz.

    I have no barbarians, so would not have been able to come anyway, but sorry to hear you lost your bet Although Saaluta should be on her barb life someday, lol.

    I lost the bet - not because we tried an failed but because after 3 hours starting at 8:30 PM EST on Friday night.
    (Thanks to those three that joined)

    In that time I got 3 Khyber Barbarians and a bunch of mixed comments (2 Pure and one 11/8/1 Barb/Ftr/Bard AA)


    Some clerics/fvs sent tells telling me I was nuts

    Had a paladin actually send me a tell saying I was bashing paladins because I wouldn't except him

    Had a monk joke with me about him having more HP than a barbarian.

    I had couple Tells saying they wished their barbarian was "Big" enough to be Shroud Flagged.

    I even had a tell asking "How are you going to break the crystal in part 2 without an arcane?" <- Just to note, All 3 Barbarians had a Bow or Throwing Weapons with nice damage modifiers

    I even got an invite to drop my silliness and come heal a CitW.
    ------------------------------------------------
    I honestly thought I was going to win this bet, I just didn't count on losing because there was not enough Barbarians to even 8 man the Shroud. Also being the home server of Shade (Axer) I was sure there would be enough Barbarians running around.

    So now this makes me curious;

    • Has the whole self healing thing gone so far to an extreme that even people that loved their DPS monster Barbarians are leaning more towards self healing classes?
    • Or was Friday night 8:30 to 10:30 PM EST just the wrong time or was it just the 20th of December (Holiday)?
    • Or was there fear that a single Cleric level 25 would not be able to heal 11 Barbarians and only 3 had some semblance of faith? (Having a single life line on an Elite Raid does have risk)
    • Or did the LFM leave many barbarians Stunned that someone actually wanted them as they were and not demanding BYOH?


    Losing the bet was not the most disappointing thing, I was looking forward to seeing the unbridled fury of 11 barbarians taking seconds to remove portals and possibly 1 rounding part 4 and possibly taking 5 minutes to complete part 5 on elite.
    you could have added 1 more if i wasnt currently on a tr train. 1/2 way through my second pally life with 1 more to go before i go back to barb.

    I saw your LFM.

    I would have joined if both my barbs (2 of my 5 toons)
    hadn't been on timer for Shroud already.

    khyber has some endgame going ... but mostly behind closed doors... something happened that destroyed the trust on pugs (i look at you free level 16 stones from MOTU)
    Khyber: Pinel ip!140+ / Laerak 120 / Sibeli 80 / Kaeral 100 / Gilmara 60 - Crafter 150/145/145

    I admit I was one who questioned the idea of the all barb one heal shroud but some of my reasons were not what you may have thought here are the four things that went through my mind first

    A. just does not sound fun so why do it

    B. why all barbs (then I sent a tell and you told me about the bet)

    C. I was not worried about the crystal but what if someone had trouble with there puzzle (I was under the impression that you were only asking for pure barbs)

    D. This thing is going to take forever to fill.

    For me the biggie was it just did not sound fun for one reason or another.

    Well I guess I can work on leveling Fetch some and getting him flagged in case you decide to try again sounds like fun to me win or lose.

    To be fair Sith - alot of people who want to challenge themselves in terms of gaming decide that after playing this game for a certain amount of time, that its time to pick up a new game - a new challenge, as opposed to playing the very same game 6-10 hours a day, every week for 3 or 4 years like you or I have been.

    Khyber is "empty" because many like you made the decision you cant, and that is to move on and find challenge elsewhere. When you described your problems to me in party before you left khyber - I was thinking that the issue was that you were finished with the game, not that there is something wrong with khyber.

    As a side note, I think your English is excellent - I dont think it lets you down much at all......I just think you dont realize how disrespectful you have sounded in a couple of posts to those on khyber who made you who you are today.

    Sorry if this offends you in any way but thats the way I see it.

    You're still to this day one of the nicest guys i've ever met.

    Another part of the problem is that Sith is comparing what he currently sees now on Thelanis to what he saw on just before he left Khyber.

    To a degree yes...but it's not khybers fault that everyone hasn't the hours of experience behind them that certain individuals like sith has.

    When you've done every raid 500 times / when you have every piece of gear / when you've guild hopped across nearly all the top end guilds or when you've done all your epic elites....the games gonna be stale.....you can't rag on khyber because others who haven't played a zillion hours and haven't achieved the above goals don't want to do these speed runs or whatever.

    I'm happy for people to do whatever they want to sustain their interest in the game....but it's not a individual/guild/servers fault for not sharing another individual/guild/servers interests or ways of playing.

    Well he can speak for himself but I don't think he was necessarily saying that. I gave an example of a difference I see between the two servers and I sort of play on both. I'll leave it at that.
